Lendio Sponsors My New Enterprise Tour 2014

2 min read • May 05, 2014 • Mike Alder

Here at Lendio we are constantly thinking about how we can help build up and support the American dream—it is part of our mission after all. We recently heard about a great opportunity to help share the story of America’s small-town entrepreneurs.

My New Enterprise is heading out on a bike tour across America to talk with Main Street small business entrepreneurs to learn their story. Last week they launched a kickerstarter campaign to raise all the funds they need to support their expedition.  The page includes a short video explaining what they are doing, why they are doing, and why you should contribute:

After learning of this opportunity, Lendio has decided to donate to My New Enterprise’s cause and become a gold sponsor for their tour. The sponsorship is a great fit for both companies because we are about helping out Main Street business owners with their American dream.

The tour will start on Monday, June 2, 2014 and continue through the end of July. They are start on the west coast in Florence, Oregon and will end on the east coast in Yorktown, Virginia. Want to see if they’re going to be coming to your hometown? Check out the tour schedule and map below:
